EP8 - Justine Cappelle - about the invisible, make-up, documentary and going beyond
The week, we had another car crash and lost part of the footage we had with this weeks artist, Justine Cappelle. We fixed it like everything else, and just re-recorded the first part. With Justine, we talk about her upcoming movies which lean towards documentary but take an experimental step to achieve her goal of making invisible phenomena visible. While not outspokenly political or activistic, there are social topics that always peak up. Justine doesn't want to leave you with an opinion, but make you form your own through the process of discovering the world in a new way, to use eyes that see what wasn't there before. Justine will be part of our upcoming exhibition "BruocsellA". Go check out her work on https://justinecappelle.wordpress.com    The episode is also available on YouTube. https://youtu.be/30Vjnv2BgxY ------ Sandra Meilunaite and Dilum Coppens are two Brussels-based artists, working together in their chilly studio. After opening up their studio and adjoining space for an exhibition under the name "BETWEEN (STAGE)", they decided to keep the ball rolling, renovate the room and use it as an artist-run exhibition space for young and emerging artist under the name "K.L.8". By hosting regular exhibitions for artists trying to do what they love, they hope to show Brussels the fresh young faces of promising creators, and broaden both the artists’ as their own network.

EP6 - Francesca Mussi - about printing techniques, exhibitions and life as an artist
In this episode, we have a long talk with with Francesca Mussi. Her practice may start out from the idea of printmaking, but it goes way beyond that. She interacts with the space, with myths, with her own body. Navigating the site-specificity of the places she inhabits with her work, she shows a print of what that space means.  Francesca's work will be shown 17-24 July 2020 at K.L.8 in the exhibition "beauty/?".

EP3 - Claudia Holzinger - about photography and beauty/ugliness
In this episode, Sandra and Dilum have a nice little chit-chat with Claudia Holzinger. Claudia’s work immediately captured their eyes by the campy and honest attitude that was clear in her photographic work. Examining different aspects of her goofy personality, she shows herself at her best; wether it is in the form of her father in an FC Bayern tracksuit or dressed up in costumes she ordered of Amazon. Her work will also be shown in the show “Beauty/?”.
